Notes

Notes:
-- this is a major upgrade in sound quality
-- replaces Monte's shnid 90351
-- these transfers are fixed up pretty good

patch list:
-- Morning Dew has SBD patch from 07:02.5 until 07:14.2, due to accidental pause/unpause by taper
-- PITB has AUD patch from 05:30.8 until 06:10, due to reel change
-- PITB set-ending announcement has SBD patch
-- Eyes Of The World has AUD patch at start until 14:52.5, due to taper getting stoned during break
-- Big River has AUD patch at start until 00:02.6
-- Around And Around has SBD patch at end from 05:13.9 to 05:41, "We're gonna tune up real good"
-- He's Gone has SBD patch from 14:30.2 to 14:48.2 (ending), due to reel flip
-- Wharf Rat has SBD patch from the start to 00:12.5, due to reel flip
-- That's Alright Mama has SBD patch from 06:11.2 to 08:59.5, due to tape damage

This AUD recording epitomizes the very best of the Grateful Dead "live sound" for the time. The prototype Wall of Sound is nailed by Alembic and the sound crew for this show. Set within an outdoor Stadium, this close-up infield FOB spatially captures sound from the two Aux PA towers on the infield, behind the taper. This sound delay adds a touch of ear candy as it rolls around the stadium. June 9 was my first time taping. June 10 was a Modal Spectacle. These shows at RFK Stadium were by far the best sound I ever heard come out of a PA System, period. It was a sensational orgy of sound.

Matt Smith did a great job transferring these tapes of mine! Thank you!

I don't know, maybe try at least *20th* century review display technology? Just a thought.
